Painting Faces from Photographs

Ted’s passion is painting people. Through a balance of demonstration, presentation, and one-on-one instruction, Ted will share his philosophical approach as well as introduce other artists’ work for the purpose of exploring what they may have been thinking in their use of color, composition and light. In the demonstration portion of the workshop, Ted will discuss anatomy, expression, emotion, light, color, composition and the benefits of working from a photographic reference. While he employs his experience as a watercolorist to his instruction, more important is an intention to cultivate, in each workshop participant, an awakening to how and what an artist might be thinking as they approach a painting. Students working in any paint medium are invited to register.
